We rented through an individual condo owner. Our room was on the 13th floor on the east end of the building. As we were there in late summer, the crowds were down. The parking deck never got as much as half full. The property was well maintained and clean. The location is fantastic. It's just a little west of Pier... More

Just returned from a week at Tidewater Beach Resort. The facility is new and well-maintained. It is close to Pier Park and many restaurants, has a small gift shop and grill and more. We rented from condo owners who were easy to work with. Our unit was clean and nicely decorated and quite affordable. We loved watching dolphins, rays and... More

We rented a condo in Panama through VRBO for my son's baseball tournament. The condo was GREAT. Clean, beautiful view, and full on amenities. The resort elevators however were HORRIBLE. The wait was insane. There are 7 elevators but it still was not enough for the demand. When you left your condo you had to make sure you had everything... More

We rented on VRBO (room 1518), and the whole thing went very smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend this unit, as it was very clean, well stocked, and had a breathtaking view. This room is a corner unit, and has a 270 degree view, so you see the gulf, the pier, Pier Park, and you can even see Back Beach Rd from... More

rented through VRBO, 209513. IT WAS AMAZING!! All of the complaints I read regarding the elevators were correct BUT you have to realize you will have a wait when there are 30 floors and it is summer vacation. There was only one time we had to really wait but I was at the beach and did not really care. I... More

We stayed the week of August 3rd-9th. I loved the room. I never had a problem with the elevators. I didn't have problems with other guest. We didn't use the pools we always went to the ocean. This is the second time I stayed here I didn't like the room I had the first time but that's cause I used... More

I was very nervous reading all the elevator comments but so glad we decided to take the chance! We stayed in 1705 and it was amazing (rented through VRBO 467835) the view and decorations were spectacular! Though there is a wait for the elevators it was not the nightmare that everyone kept talking about. I would highly recommend staying there.

Unit #2113 is an upscale apartment like condo. Great views of the beach, the gulf, and outstanding sunsets. The water is many different shades depending on the day and time of day, all great colors. Very comfortable beach access as well as pool and hot tub. As you can see, the elevator situation creates a lot of comments but if... More
